David Plath Media Award commendation for "Sending Off"


Extremely honoured to receive this commendation for my documentary 「おみおくり〜Sending Off〜」from the Society for East Asia Anthropology's David Plath Media Award.

"The Award Committee was deeply moved by the film and applauds the intimate ethnographic lens brought to bear on a personal and often private subject....the film explores not just aging, but gender roles and the ethics of care in Japan."
